Re: BU Development Thread

In case you didn't know the dental building was built in 2 phases back in the 1970's, A few years after the building opened they added 3 floors. Hence the awkward fenestration.

Re: BU Development Thread

^^^ Very interesting thanks.

Anyone know what is going on with the Newton Pavilion next door? It has been fenced off and vacant for several months.

Re: BU Development Thread

BU Dental School used irregular fenestration decades before it became fashionable. That was due to adding a vertical addition 3 years after the original was built.
